A review of Webster’s Bedtime
by Corey (Y5 Digital Leader)
This book is about turning your electronic devices off before bed. If you don’t, your electronics won’t have any charge on them when you want to use them.
The book says that all the electronics moan, but it says the tablet had a bad dream so Webster put it in its case because you should put all your stuff away so you don’t lose them.
It says the TV is snoring really load so Webster muted the TV. Laptop complains that computer is making loads of noise, and that means when you leave your computer on too long it makes a strange noise.
Webster is small spider with 8 legs. He must be a sensible spider because he does what is right for his electronics.
Verdict: I really enjoyed the book. Remember, turn your electronics of before bed!
A Guide to YouTubers
by Luke (Year 5 Digital Leader)
YouTube, a video posting platform, can be a dangerous site that has bad people which encourage you to act like them. Some examples of bad YouTubers are:
Jake Paul and Logan PaulJacksepticeye
These are bad because they either swear or are bad role models like Logan Paul because he smashes items.
Good examples are:
StampyThese are good because they are good role models and do not swear.

The NSPCC provided a wonderfully informative and thought-provoking workshop for parents today on Online Safety. A big thank you to the provider and the parents who came.
A great example of St Peter’s school and parents working in partnership to ensure pupils are able to navigate the wonders of technology and the internet in a safe, responsible way.
A group of Year 5 Digital Leaders developed their knowledge of programming further this week as they visited Bolton SICT. They took part in a Scratch2 workshop where they designed their own maze game using a range of techniques which they will be able to share with their peers in school.
Some of our new Year 3 Digital Leaders have written and filmed their own introductory video to the Times Tables Rock Stars app using the green screen. It’s funny, informative and has helped get everyone excited to practise their times tables. Rock on!
